Imagining in the beginning

Nirvana, alienation and nothing in between

And so it was back zen as it is right Tao –
an opportunity to create . . .

(Big Bang)

To know Myself – experientially

Boundless Energy . . .

Now with a point of reference
Of discovery, forgetting and remembering
(sometimes simultaneously)

Who am I?
Who are you?
Who are we?

And where are we going?

Together as One . . .

Never separate . . .

Merely an illusion of disconnection

My creation reveals
My image in you
In the moment of Now . . .

My sleepy children
Awaken from your hibernation
Venture from Plato’s Cave
You must confront your darkest shadows
Before you may bask in the light of your soul

Mindfully Embracing your thoughts and feelings
Connecting the dots of your behavior
Piecing together the mysterious puzzle of

Infinite Intelligence

Sometimes, my apparent grandest creations
Appear timid and weak

Conversely, seemingly insignificant creations
Manifesting as a critical catalyst
For evolutionary growth

Defenses are eradicated
By expanded consciousness and transcendence

Finally understanding my Universal Language . . .

Love is as Love does

After passing the peak of Yang-Masculine energy of yesterday’s Summer Solstice, our spirits climaxed in that Light. Now we Turtle along Yinward with the mysterious rising of Dark-Feminine energy, though we often think of summer as outward growth and being playfully social like Butterfly. We have discussed before in this blog that every moment carries a death and a rebirth. In the sense that Butterfly is symbolic of transformation, we can open up our consciousness to the idea of Reincarnation by raising our awareness. From this vantage point, we can expand our idea of Reincarnation to include past lives and future lives beyond this physical lifetime. This is somewhat akin to genetic memory. We see that we are multidimensional spiritual beings having human experiences. Today, we understand that we all have star-dust encoded in our DNA. Given that the double helix looks like a figure 8 (the sign of infinity), meditation on that helps us wake-up to creating ourselves anew and waking up to the realm of possibility. If our taste buds change and bodies change every seven years, then why resist this process with devilishly fixed ideas?

We have recorded and reported stories of our connection to the cosmos in our archives. In the defended position of “national security”, the truth about our Universal brothers and sisters has been kept hidden from us. Regardless of what you believe, our reality is that we are living in a time where the existence of UFO’s and extraterrestrials lives within our collective consciousness, like the proverbial “elephant in the room” within a family affected by addiction. It really isn’t about being “out there” or “far out”–what matters is what we allow ourselves to integrate into our personal worldview. When the veils thin, will we welcome them into our Earth family with open arms? It appears that our Imperial Leadership Team feels entitled and justified in maintaining a top-down, “rule by few” idea about governing the business of our Planet. Basically, the old idea says that the reality of our Universal brothers and sisters should be kept hidden from us by keeping us in the dark, like Plato’s Cave. Why not shed light on the truth about their relationship with our human family? But the Majority position prefers to go unexamined. Come on guys, it is time to come out of the closet and let your light shine too.

We witnessed this nuance play out when a news story revealed that a woman was fired from her job in the corporate media for inadvertently allowing a Freudian slip of “sex” to come out of her mouth. Really? The advertising industry makes an intentional killing by selling sex through overt and covert advertising campaigns to push products on us by tapping in to our primal sexual urges, drives and instincts. Was Bill Clinton fired (fired from what) for calling President Obama a “wuss” recently? Isn’t that like dropping the “n-bomb”, slick Willie? Doesn’t it feel like our esteemed Leadership holds a fixed view of themselves as above the laws they craft for us to follow? If we are expected to be held accountable for our actions, why are they tax-exempt from paying our money down? Do they not realize that their actions speak louder than words and that modeling is the most powerful form of teaching? I don’t know what kind of black sorcery “moderate Republican” Bill Clinton and his Elitist friends in the Empire are practicing, but I know their allegiance to an old paradigm is dying. It seems like they are hellbent on manifesting a self-fulfilling prophecy of leading the cavalry to the “eve of destruction”. But “issues with intimacy” will do that and we all have our part to do in transforming our intimacy so within, as without. Love is the answer. We all need to wake up to that in these dangerous times by moving further away from the force of fear and closer to the power of love. May we remember the saying, “let go and let God”.

Summer is a hot time for manifestation. It is always wise to remember gratitude. When we carry an “attitude of gratitude” we are in alignment with Nature and Great Spirit. Hanging out in the energy field of manipulation and power and control is bad medicine for transcending Karma, the law of cause and effect. At the end of the day, Karma revisits and grounds you as it has been asked to do, whether realized or not. Developmentally, humanity is at a crossroads. On the one hand, we have the old world idea that membership has its privileges. This idea believes that our Planet is a playground that should be exploited for maximum economic profit for a minority of benefactors and trashed accordingly. This internally polluted idea reflects in the nightmare that we have invested in and bought into. Any challenge to this paradigm has been met with both subtle and provocative force to control against transformation. The other idea that is awakening and cross-pollinating our consciousness is that we are all One, albeit colorful and diverse expressions of that Oneness. What we do to the self, we do to the other. Our actions have consequences, some of them unintended. If a Butterfly flaps its wings, this can affect Climate Change. If a Butterfly flitting about could potentially create a ripple effect for a Tsunami, then imagine what we are capable of. Meditation on Butterfly is good medicine to change ourselves from the inside out. When we change the way we look at something, what we look at changes and we become the change we want to see in the world. There is a reality to the perception of doom and gloom. But there is also a reality to Butterfly opening up our Hearts to smile! If you can hold the tension of those opposites, just make a conscious choice to focus on the “Chi” of Butterfly! Spiritually, this is how we transform lead into gold through inner alchemy. We elevate our consciousness by realizing that spirit literally matters.

Pouncing down the trails head, we look forward to a New Moon this week on May 10th and a Full Moon leaping down the month on May 25th. Also, we celebrated the Beltane last week, otherwise known as May Day. This ancient sacred tradition “honors and celebrates the sacred marriage of masculine and feminine, yin and yang” and the “inner union with the Beloved.” It marks the mid-point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice and fertilizes harmony between our spiritual and material growth or walking in alignment with “one foot in spirit, one foot in ground.” Tiger synchronizes with the New and Full Moon cycles as its energetic power time. Consuming Tiger’s spirited medicine helps us develop our passion, power, devotion and sensuality. Meditation on Tiger will wake up your sensitivity to touch. Tiger’s are skilled swimmers, so their energy reflects connection to the elemental forces of water. They are colorful and unpredictable, reflecting the world we live in and the changing times we are swimming in on Mother Earth today. In Chinese Astrology, their sign is seen as adventurous, powerful and passionate and symbolize the dark night of the New Moon and the sunlight of the Full Moon. Given that “traditions are time-tested proof that things work”, meditation on Tiger, in conjunction with a fire ritual facilitates burning away Winter, while shifting our gears full-throttle by igniting Spring.

Something is changing in the sea of consciousness on our Planet today. Although it is a process, it is becoming more difficult for folks to ignore. The garden variety of band-aids used to quell the symptoms that are roaring out to us are less effective in covering up the spirited energies streaming in now. Whether the arrival of symptomatic reactions manifests as distorted visions, racing thoughts, chronic headaches, lethargy, terrorism, mania in the global Stock Exchange–the intensity is rising and the times, they are a changin’. The perception of polarity, duality or “us and them” needs to be released from and healed in our consciousness. Living authentically and respectfully in a global village requires us to sit with the tension of opposites that exists within our individual and collective souls. Every man has a woman inside of his Being, just as every woman has a man within hers. When meditation is embraced as a popular way to consume a spiritual diet, we will see the proliferation of this understanding reflecting in our outer world for everyone to notice as obvious. Right now, you really have to take a close look for the evidence and hold that focus, given the reality of the dark and stormy weather patterns. The smoke and mirrors of our World are an illusion that carry a reality to that perception. In the realm of Infinity, the possibilities of blazing New Trail into a New Frontier are there for us to clear, if only we allow for it. But it is a process that we all have to step-up to on a case by case basis. The Golden Age is not a fixed ideal, where we find ourselves living in after a long, strange trip. Rather, when we change the way we look at the world, the world we look at changes. In this way, we become the change we want to see in the world. We are co-creating novel neuronal pathways inside our brains, signaling our conscious evolutionary next step in our program development.

We all have a basic need to feel safe and secure. However, looking to our outer world to provide that meal for us to eat is frequently met with a receipt for poor digestion. At the end of the day, we all need to access and acquire our internal power for a sense of safety and security. Our spirited animal friends are here to help reflect that back to humanity. True, it is a jungle out there. But have you ever watched animals frolic and play, even among predators and prey? They are good reminders for that. We are shifting from a divisive, compartmentalized view of the World that looks either matriarchal or patriarchical in our shared history, toward Unity Consciousness. In the words of Mr. Miyagi from the film The Karate Kid, we are “different, but same.”
